      It was so lovely to see Mark Williams on top of the snooker world once more last night. Even more nice was that the match was played against his old friend and rival John Higgins and to a standard that was unbelievable and probably the best I've seen - completely fitting for a final featuring two of the greatest there has ever been and ever will be. I remember when Mark last played in the final against Doherty in 2003 and I can't not get all nostalgic and remember where I was, the longer evenings and the run down to the last weeks of school so it was quite emotional to see him, at least, return to a moment he last had all those years back.

      Nice to see him keeping his word that he wasn't going to stop drinking until the sun came up this morning (oh and doing his final press conference starkers...not so nice! :D ). Just goes to show that if you succeed big at something then always take the time to enjoy it, cos you never know when the next one will come around!

      Great come back from Graham Dott this evening.

      Bingham looks shot to pieces.

      Bingham recovered well to take the final frame.

      Enjoyed that one.

      Higgins v Gilbert gone to a deciding frame. 16 all.

      After watching Higgo yesterday, I didn't see this happening because he was f**king awful.

      Gilbert to break in the decider.

      Poor safety from Gilbert but looks like he's got away with it.

      Higgins went for a very difficult red and left Gilbert a relatively easy to the middle, which he pots and is on any of the baulk colours.

      Few nervy shots there from Dave, leading to a missed black.

      Higgins now at the table with an easy opener and good position on the pink to split them if he wants.

      Recovers with a boss red into the middle and lands perfectly on the yellow. For me, Higgo remains the best-all round player of all time.

      The split has worked out this time and now it's looking like Higgins is in the final.

      But Higgins has collided with the green as he was trying to get on the penultimate red from the blue.

      Very, very, very difficult final red. Especially given the circumstances.

      Very clever shot to nothing on the final red there by Higgo.

      Didn't get the pot but got it safe and now has the advantage in the safety battle.

      Higgins going for a pot on the final red and misses the red completely.

      Gilbert now left with a similar shot. And he's rattled it in the jaws, but at least he hit the red. Got a snooker from it as well and then Higgins escapes with a double kiss which he got away with as it went safe to the side cushion.

      Gilbert got the safety wrong, caught it too thick and left John a difficult red to the middle which he's potted.

      Followed by the green. Now the six colours. Yellow, green, brown and blue. Missed the pink but it doesn't matter.

      17-16

      Three consecutive World Championship finals for John Higgins.

      What a f**king player!

      Gutted I missed the sessions today.

      I'm hoping Gary Wilson can pull back against Judd but don't think he will have enough.

      Another great frame there too. Higgins will be hard to beat unless he has a bet on against himself

      Trump has just been too strong for Higgo in that second session.

      John needs to do something similar this afternoon or the evening session will be very short indeed.

      Anything worse than 14-11 at the end of the third session and I think that's curtains for Higgins.

      Maybe jinxing it but six reds, six blacks from Higgins in the opening frame of the session.
